App Description

Are you a knave or a knight? Play the Beyond Battle quiz to find out!

Arms and Armor celebrates 100 years at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. From tournaments to triumphs, Beyond Battle is a quiz that explores much more than war. Players put common myths and misconceptions about arms and armor to the test. Game questions feature images of European and Japanese armors, and helmets, firearms, and swords from the permanent collection.

Arms and armor have been a vital part of virtually all cultures for thousands of years, pivotal not only in conquest and defense, but also in court pageantry and ceremonial events. Throughout time the best armor and weapons have represented the highest artistic and technical capabilities of the society and period in which they were made, forming a unique aspect of both art history and material culture.

Additional content and information about the collection is available at www.metmuseum.org/armsandarmor
